Getting started 

I understand that coming for therapy – especially for the first time – may feel a bit daunting, and you might be wondering what to expect.

In the initial assessment we will talk about what is on your mind and what has led you to seek therapy at this time. We will talk about the process of therapy and discuss how we can work together, and if you have any specific goals or objectives in mind we can also consider these. We can think about whether it would be best to work with a set number of counselling sessions – usually either 6 or 12 – or whether it would be preferable to work more open-endedly.

The initial assessment will also provide an opportunity for you to get to know me and to ask any questions that you may have about me, the way I work or about the process of therapy more generally.The session will last for 50 minutes.

How I work with you

I work integratively, which means that I combine ways of working from different theoretical approaches and schools of thought in order to best meet a client’s changing needs as we progress together through therapy. I will always work with you, as a client, according to what best meets your needs at a given time, rather than working to make someone fit to a particular theory or way of working. I offer short and long term therapy, working either towards specific goals and objectives or in a more open and exploratory way, or through a combination of both approaches.

 

Most people come to therapy to feel better right now. For some people this means exploring the past and the pathways that have brought us to here, for others this means working very much in the present or towards future oriented goals. We will discuss this together, both in an initial assessment and in our ongoing sessions, to ensure that therapy continues on track and is working for you.
